The Arthur's Seat
An ancient volcano flattened by the glaciers is now a beautiful hill that provides a gorgeous view of Edinburgh
Almost at the top we can see Loch Dunsapie
The hills, the city, the islands, the inlet, it's all beautiful.
Descending from another side of the hill gave us a different view of the city.
On the distance we can see the castle and one of the largest monuments.
A view from the castle looking at the old part of Edinburgh and in the distance Arthur's Seat, the hill we climbed.

No photography was allowed in the room where the real precious objects were displayed, but one can appreciate a nice view of The Stone of Destiny, a crown and jewels, and many pieces that were protected and hidden for many centuries.
A place where the prisioners were kept.

Top of Calton Hill
On Calton Hill, The National Monument of Scotland dedicated to fallen war heros was never completed, because the project ran out of money.
The Nelson Monument is a tower that is still used today just to keep the tradition. Many centuries ago, this tower served as a clock and the mariners used it to sincronized their clocks before they set sail. Every day at 12:55 pm, the ball raises to the top of the cross, then at 1:00 pm a cannon is fired from the castle and the ball drops to the bottom of the cross.
